Let me sum up my stay here for you with the first complaint: I found potato chips in my bed sheets, right after they'd been changed. I hadn't eaten any potato chips.
The breakfast: instant grits and oatmeal, packaged muffins, granola bars, and coffee or tea. No place to sit, you have to carry it all to your room, which is a challenge! You try carrying a cup of hot coffee, another cup of hot water for the oatmeal, and a muffin, then getting the key to your room out! But there's no lobby to eat in. Breakfast promptly shuts down at 9:30am, even on weekends. My carpet was full of pet hair, which was getting all over my clothes, until I begged the maid to vacuum. Not something they normally do. The plastic faux wood floor was coming up in the bathroom, the divider separating the kitchen floor (same faux wood) from the carpet was coming off, making a mess with its glue. And the "most idiotic" award goes to whoever put in the fridge. It's against the left wall. The door opens from that wall, with the table also in the way directly in front of the fridge. So, when it's open, everything in the fridge door is facing the wall, and you can't see inside it, because you're blocked by the door and the table. Bare minimum pots & pans, cups, plates and flatware. Like 2 each. Tiny packets of dish washing detergent that you have to ask for. This place is brilliantly creative only in how to skimp! Don't even get me started on the free WiFi! Dial up speed. Don't even bother! I laughed out loud when it offered to double my speed for $4 a day--that would make it 30kb/sec instead of 15!!!! Great! And I love hotels that put in HDTVs and then offer only standard def channels, which look worse than on an old tv.
Sorry to rant but this place really deserves it! A poorly conceived and poorly run hotel.
